VinBus Ecology Transport Services Limited Liability Company has officially put the first smart electric bus in Vietnam into operation. The first electric bus lines will operate in Vinhomes Ocean Park (Gia Lam) while waiting for finishing the procedures to connect with the city’s public passenger transport system.
VinBus is an electric bus model manufactured and assembled by VinFast at the Automobile Manufacture Complex in Hai Phong.
VinBus has a battery capacity of 281 kWh, capable of 220 - 260 km of range (137 - 162 miles). Buses can be quickly fully charged after only 2 hours at VinBus’s 150kW fast charging station system with charging technology provided by StarCharge.
All VinBus buses will be managed and operated through centralized monitoring, charging, safety inspection, maintenance, repair, and automatic cleaning at depot stations arranged according to VinBus’ primary lines. Depot stations are built on a campus of more than 1 hectare, with a roof equipped with solar panels to ensure energy supply and contributing to reducing the load on the grid.
